Comfortable solar charging at home
Combining MENNEKES charging stations with PV systems
MENNEKES makes it easy for you to get around with solar energy. With a photovoltaic system and the right AMTRON® charger, it's very easy for you to sustainably charge up your electric car with solar power. Depending on the required functionality and your living situation, you can choose between the AMTRON® Compact 2.0s and AMTRON® Professional for combinationa with a solar panel system.
Climate change, a diminishing supply of fossil fuels, air pollution: going forward it's essential to achieve carbon neutrality. The benefits of solar charging are obvious: self-produced power makes both environmental and financial sense because it reduces your energy costs despite rising prices. A combination of wall charger and solar system lets you use self-generated power for driving your electric car while boosting home consumption of solar energy. Instead of selling power from your roof to the grid at unreasonably low rates, use it to charge your car!
Charge flexibly when and as you want and gain independence from large power companies. Yet another benefit: purchases of photovoltaic and home charging systems are being subsidised by various programmes across Europe.
You can easily control how much power is fed into your vehicle during a given time period. Two main charging functions are available for you to choose from: charging with surplus power and charging with power from the mains.
Energy from your photovoltaic system that's left over after you have supplied your house is referred to as 'surplus energy'. An intuitive, easy-to-use web interface lets you very easily use surplus energy from your home photovoltaic system to charge your electric vehicle. It's charged with up to the amount of available surplus energy. Although charging takes somewhat longer this way, you don't consume any power from the mains. This means that you only have eco-friendly solar energy in your battery.
If charging occasionally takes too long and you don't want to wait until your electric car has been fully charged with self-generated solar power, if wished a home charger from MENNEKES can be used to very easily use a combination of photovoltaic and mains power. In this case, charging is controlled so that as much solar energy as possible is used. If it drops below the minimum required for charging, the difference is made up with mains power during a time period that you specify.
